This download includes one digitized buttonhole in the following formats: EXP, HUS, DST, EMD, JEF, PEC, PES, VIP, XXX.  The digitized stitching includes a narrow line of tiny stitches around the buttonhole opening for interest. The underlay  includes multiple lines of stitching that run perpendicular to the top stitching.  This buttonhole works well on quilted fabric that has two layers of quilt weight fabric with low loft quilt batting sandwiched in between. It is perfect to use for the closure on a pillow back.  1.5 buttons-to-cover  are perfect to use with this buttonhole!  You can cover these buttons with your own fabric so that they will coordinate perfectly with your project.

PLEASE NOTE! ALL OF THE FREE DESIGNS COME WITH BASTING RECTANGLES. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, please read the free tutorial here. Please remember to start stitching with the second thread color. I realize this sounds a little crazy, but different embroidery machines behave differently so in order to be sure that the basting rectangle will work properly on all home embroidery machines I have to digitize a starting color that is not used. It's complicated.

This download includes the following file formats: HUS, DST, EMD, JEF, PEC, PES, VIP, XXX. This design is in one color, has
1,260 stitches, and measures about 2.13" X .25". The basting rectangle measures 3"X4".
